Dedicated to Sheila Johnston Davis who has been my co-conspirator, my confidant, my partner-in-crime, and my closest and dearest friend since Junior High School. Sheila is someone I can count on to always have my back, and to be there for me when I need a true friend. Thank you, Sheila, for being my best friend forever.
No one ever told me getting married would be easy. All I wanted was a short, simple ceremony, performed in the gazebo Stone built in the back yard of the Alexandria Inn. And I wanted this ceremony in the presence of as large a crowd of family and friends as I could muster. I was thrilled to be marrying the second love of my life, and I wanted to share my happiness with everyone I knew.
I didn’t want the ceremony to be as elaborate and expensive as my first wedding, but I wanted it to be every bit as meaningful. We wouldn’t be shelling out hard-earned money for champagne, caviar, a catered rehearsal dinner, or a dress I’d wear once in my life, that cost five grand. It would just be a day full of family, friends, love, happiness, and fond memories that would last a lifetime.
The wedding party would be small and intimate. My twenty-nine-year-old daughter, Wendy, would be my maid of honor and Stone’s nephew, Andy, would serve as his best man. There wouldn’t be any ring bearer or flower girl, nor any bridesmaids and groomsmen. Only the two people dearest to our hearts would stand up with us.
